in Uncategorized by

Honoring both the city and the swearing in of the newest mayor, the Junior League of St. Petersburg will hold its 2014 Inaugural Mayoral Ball.  The theme of the non-partisan, charity event is Home – There’s No Place like St. Petersburg.

The event will be Friday, January 10, 2014 at the Mahaffey Theater, 400 1st St. South, featuring dinner, dancing, cocktails and a firework show. The festival takes places about one week after the January 2 swearing-in of the new mayor.

Several levels of corporate sponsorship are available, and a private Sponsor Reception will take place in the VIP lounge during the traditional cocktail reception. Individual dinner tickets are $175 and tables are available for purchase. 

Attendees can also buy an individual $25 “On The Green” ticket, which allows access to the event, dessert, dancing and a premium view of the firework show. 

Serving the St. Petersburg area for more than 80 years, the Junior League of St. Petersburg (JLSP) is a volunteer organization with over 500 women members committed to promoting voluntarism and improving the community.

As an exclusively educational and charitable organization, the JLSP both organizes and funds community projects to better the lives of families and children.
